The first dinner in the series, that took place last October, was held in a busy train during peak hour. The second event invited guests to the boiler room of Amsterdam’s former commodity exchange, the Beurs van Berlage. For the third edition of Wilddineren, the bathrooms of Haarlem concert hall Patronaat were transformed into a one-night restaurant.
Thomas Steigenga, one of the founders of Wilddineren, explains that there was no financial incentive in starting the restaurant. Everyone, even the cooks, is involved on a voluntary basis. Instead, enthusiasm and curiosity are the driving forces behind the project. Steigenga explains that Wilddineren wants to take the diners out of their daily routine, and explore creative ideas for multi-purposed spaces.
